WORMING

 

Why it is important to worm your kitten/ cat
Worming your cat/kitten is a very important part of protecting them from harmful parasites that could negatively affect their health.
It’s much easier to prevent worms and parasitic infections than it is to treat an infection after an animal is infested, so being proactive is the best plan of action
Kittens become infected with hookworms & roundworms via their mother when they are young kittens. Tapeworms are spread via fleas so its best to  flea them with frontline every month
Worms are more than a nuisance, they can have severe health problems in cats & especially young kittens.
